Being Greek means being united through our family, one that is much larger than the simple nuclear family, and through our Greek Orthodox faith, which keeps us united in times of hardships and times of peace.
Being Greek means being proud of our ancestors and their accomplishment, from Aristotle and his theories to my grandmother and her ability to move to a new land, without speaking any of the language, and make something out of nothing.
"On the 28th of October 1940 Greece was given a deadline of three hours to decide on war or peace but even if a three day or three week or three year were given, the response would have been the same. The Greeks taught dignity throughout the centuries. When the entire world had lost all hope, the Greek people dared to question the invincibility of the German monster raising against it the proud spirit of freedom."
